    Unhappy How can i get back to tier 3 on FFA?

    Ok, i am tier 4 and i got there by winning 10 games, i asked before and a guy told me to watch visje's videos, i watched them i tried to play like him but still fail, he said to time items.. I time pu'ps and mega and still i can't win, there are people who have played from day one on tier 4. I am not for tier 4 and i am getting bored of losing all the time. I just won.. But with BFG and regeneration pu control.. Pretty noobish huh? So, how many loses do i need to get back to tier 3? And if i am on other than 1st place do i get down or i get more points which keeps me on tier 4? Or can just an moderator get me back to tier 3 because i'm not for tier 3, i get owned all the time!

    [EDIT: I played two more games and i almost won, no need to post replies]

    Just walk, don't run and use only gauntlet. You'll be kicked back in a few games..

    But then you'll have some good games.. And back to Tier 4.

    The "Cusp" is irritating. That's life kiddo..

    You don't just need to lose, you need to lose badly. Your score/timePlayed must be among the worst of the server to lose skillrating and eventually drop down a tier. But then when you'll be there you'll just win your games easily and come back to Tier 4 >.> .

    If you're used to winning in T3 with any regularity at all, you should probably be in T4.

    While team games, you'd expect your win % to be around 50%, in FFA, with 8 players it should be 12.5%. Even with 6 players, it should be 17%. From what I've seen, anyone half decent at all (concept of strafe jumping and switch weapons w/o the mouse wheel) will win close to half of T3 games. Of course, then they'll end up in T4 and win 1/20 because of the depth of experienced FFA players there.

    TBH, I'm not horrible at FFA, but I never expect to win a game. Even if a match starts with 4 of us and I'm owning them all, a T5 try-hard will show up half way through and run the table. It's a good challenge for them coming from behind, but it means mere mortals aren't meant to actually win many matches.
